This recipe has been retooled from it's original form as I found it on the internet. I reduced the sugar, used whole wheat flour and used cracked cornmeal from Bob's Red Mill. The lemon zest could easily be omitted but I can't believe how fresh it made them taste! We ate them with butter and maple syrup but a compote of blueberries, cinnamon and nutmeg is in the fridge ready to be used this week for quick breakfasts. Two dozen golden delicious waffles are in my freezer. Well worth the work.
Cornmeal Whole Wheat Waffles
1 1/2c. whole wheat flour
1 1/2c. cornmeal
5 t. baking powder - yes this is correct, you need this much to give them the fluffy texture
4 T. brown sugar
1/4c. melted butter
zest of one lemon
Whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, brown sugar, butter and lemon zest. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Fold in the wet ingredients. Let sit for 5 minutes while the waffle iron heats up. The more the batter rises, the fluffier the final waffles will be. Cook for 3 min or until golden brown.
